I wish I could take credit

for what I am about to share with you
but alas it just isn't so!
Several weeks back I was scoping out some new blogs and there was this beautiful butterfly pendant that I fell in love with. The coolest thing was it was created from aluminum cans, die cuts and alcohol inks. It just so happens I have most of the things needed to create this.
 I affixed the butterfly to a piece of slate that I had previously stamped
with flourishes and the word dream.
 I forgot about these watch bits and bobs, so glad I found them as
 it sort of adds some Steampunk flair
 It's rather large so I decided to wear it in my hair as well as my daughter.
My darling daughter just also happens to be wearing a funky skirt I made out of old
 ties. It used to be mine about 20 years so I've altered it several times to ensure she could keep wearing it.
So I just want to say THANK YOU to who ever that  amazing blog that was!
Have a great Thursday
